Life is BUT a stopping place

Menanti sunset di bumbung rumah, Subhanallah

Menanti sunset di bumbung rumah, Subhanallah

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
To sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We are all meant to learn some things,
But never meant to stay…

Saya pernah recite rangkap poem ini di hadapan ratusan pelajar semasa Hari Anugerah Kokurikulum SMKA Maahad Hamidiah. Kenapa? Kerana saya seorang sahaja yang dapat menghafal Sonnet 18 di dalam kelas saya semasa di tingkatan 4.

Anyone who can memorize and recite Sonnet 18 in the class tomorrow will get a special prize.

Bow, Stubborn Knees!

oleh Shakespeare.

Bukan masanya untuk menyentuh tentang En. Shakespeare kali ini ( next time mungkin ).  Mari kita sama-sama muhasabah di hujung Ramadhan ini. Sedih bukan? Bagi mereka yang sayangkan Allah dan mencari redhaNya, perpisahan dengan Ramadhan bukanlah sesuatu yang dinantikan.

Countdown 8 days to go…

Bismillah…

Lagi 8 hari sebelum Summer Camp 2008 tetapi hati dah sedih. Bukan sedih sebab apa, tetapi sebab kalau SC dan bermula mesti akan berakhir. Dan itu yang menyedihkan diri ini.


Sekarang saya tahu apa ertinya bertemu dan berpisah keranaNya. Friendship, ukhuwah yang terbina bukan di atas persamaan keturunan atau ikatan darah, tetapi atas simpulan aqidah yang sama. Pasti akan menitik air mata saya nanti.

Tetapi, setiap perpisahan bukan bererti penghujung satu pertemuan, boleh jadi satu permulaan kepada sesuatu yang lebih indah dan cantik. MasyaAllah. Subhanallah.

Melihat di satu sudut, kakak-kakak sedang bermesra dengan adik-adik. Sahabat-sahabat sedang berusaha mengutip mutiara di majlis ilmu. Sekali sekala, terdengar suara gelak ketawa kanak-kanak ribena. Namun, tidak lupa suara tangisan di hamparan sejadah di waktu subuh. Kadangkala bergetar hati-hati ini, berkumpul bersama mengalun zikir mengingatiNya.

Saya mengharapkan agar friendship yang terbentuk dirahmatiNya dan berkekalan. Semoga tiada yang merungkai simpulan ini selamanya. Aminn

Diriwayatkan daripada Anas r.a: “ Nabi Muhammad SAW pernah bersabda: ” Tidak ada seorang pun di antara kalian dipandang beriman sebelum ia menyayangi saudaranya sesama Muslim seperti halnya ia menyayangi dirinya sendiri.”

(al-Bukhari)

Tetiba rasa tak sabar plak nak berSummer Camp… huhu …weaaaaaaaaa….. 🙂

Huh.. Politics, now and then

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda yang bermaksud:

”Sesiapa yang diserahkan oleh Allah akan sesuatu urusan dari beberapa urusan pemerintahan kau muslimin, lalu ia tidak mempedulikan tentang keperluan mereka, kesusahan dan penderitaan mereka nescaya Allah tidak akan mempedulikan tentang keperluan, kesusahan dan penderitaannya di hari kiamat nanti.”

Riwayat Abu Daud dan at-Tirmidzi

Andai kata, semua pemimpin tahu akan beratnya tanggungjawab memimpin ini…

Aduh… Astaghfirullah al ‘azim

Politics is the only business where doing nothing other than making the other guy look bad is an acceptable outcome

This is what politics is all about nowadays.

Do I have the right Niat?

hadith 1
It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu’minin, Abu Hafs ‘Umar bin al-Khattab, radiyallahu ‘anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, say:

“Actions are (judged) by motives niyyah, so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah)was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated.”


[Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

Waking up in the morning, gotta make my prayer
Am I really gonna’ make it, when there is no one there?
Taking trips to the masjid (mosque), even when it’s tough
Am I going for the sake of Allah? Am I showing off?
Gonna’ get me the knowledge, gonna study Islam
Am I going just to build my ego? so they call me “the Man”?
Does it matter if the people respect me, when its not for Allah?
When I know anytime He can take me, without one real du’a (prayer)
Does it matter if they say I’m a big shot?
when I get no reward for my deeds
And I’m dragged on the Day of Resurrection
Cause of the folks that I wanted to please
Plus I know that Allah has the power
To raise me up in their eyes if it need be
I should always make my intentions, for my Lord, Allah completely

Are my Intentions alright?
Am I doing for Allah?
When I’m looking deep, deep down inside
Do I have the right niyyah?

Wearing thoubs with a kufi, kufi
Miswaks leather socks like the old days
Am I trying to follow the Prophet? or am I seeking praise?
Giving talks on Islam to people
I’d be quoting Hadith and Qur’an
Am I speaking so they like how I’m speaking? and they say I’m “the Bomb”
Donating to Islamic centers, giving money so the Deen can grow
Am I giving for the sake of Allah? or is it for show?
Many times I have found my intentions
Are not what I want them to be
I know I start on the right direction
But Shaitan starts talking to me
And I forget that without my niyyah, I’m just wasting my time
My intentions cannot bring the reward, when they’re out of line
So I pray to Allah to help me, to do everything for Him only
Doesn’t matter if the people despise me
Cause with Allah I can never be lonely

Yah Allah, accept this niyyah
Coming from young Muslims striving to be believers
So on the day, our deeds You’ll measure. Know we only did this strictly for Your pleasure, Your pleasure
Your mercy, Your ajur (reward), Your Jannah (heaven), forever and ever and ever
And reward us for those who listen
Heeded to the message, changing their condition
And know that everything up until this point I’ve ever written
I submit as my repentance
And if its blessings You’re sending my way
I beg You hold them to the judgement day
so maybe in Jannah you can look back and say…it was a lovely day, a lovely, a lovely day, yes a lovely day
Are my intentions, alright, am I doing for Allah
When I am looking deep deep down inside, do I have the right niyyah (intention)?


Are my Intentions alright?
Am I doing for Allah?
When I’m looking deep, deep down inside
Do I have the right niyyah?


Inda! Iman check! Every moment. Every single minute and second.

Niyyah check! Hopefully, I didn’t do anything for the sake of nothing.

Did I muhasabah today? And what about you?

Risau

Perkara yang merisaukan telah menjadi kenyataan…

Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda yang bermaksud:

”Sesiapa yang diserahkan oleh Allah akan sesuatu urusan dari beberapa urusan pemerintahan kaum muslimin, lalu ia tidak mempedulikan tentang keperluan mereka, kesusahan dan penderitaan mereka nescaya Allah tidak akan mempedulikan tentang keperluan, kesusahan dan penderitaannya di hari kiamat nanti.”

Riwayat Abu Daud dan at-Tirmidzi

Harap tidak tersilap langkah.

Ya Allah, permudahkanlah…
